    tCu CoMpEnSation unit
    Schunk has developed the TCU, a compensation unit with base plates
    connected together by elastomer elements. As a result, the TCU can provide
    compensation in the X, Y, and Z directions, as well as angular compensation.
    Pneumatic locking is also available as an option to allow the compensation
    unit to rigidly lock the two base plates together. This prevents the gripper
    and tooling from vibrating during movement of the robot arm, which can
    cause undue wear on the elastomer elements. The compensation range
    in the X-Y directions are 2mm to 4mm, depending on the size, while the
    compensation angles are between 1.5° and 3.5°. The payload range
    on the TCU is 1kg to 24kg.

    ideal for pulling two components together, or
    to provide an adjustable grip length. Available
    in steel or stainless steel, adjustable ball lock
    pins are manufactured with four balls instead
    of two, for more distributed ball pullout force in

      Swing ClaMpS
      Carr Lane Roemheld’s newest heavy-duty swing clamps are of high quality, but are spe-
      cifically designed to be more affordable than previous models. With a maximum operat-
      ing pressure of 5,000psi, the compact clamps are double acting, with a robust swing
      mechanism for faster clamping cycles.
         The robust swing clamps are also ideal when using longer, heavier custom arms.
      These top-flange, cartridge-type clamps are designed specifically for space-saving
      manifold mounting, with position monitoring available as an option. They are available in
      two sizes.

    dpE ElECtriC parallEl grippErS
    The DPE series electric parallel grippers are designed for any application
    currently using pneumatic grippers. The DPE series requires no
    programming, tuning, or adjusting on site – it is truly
    a plug-and-play technology. The simple light
    switch operation requires only a 24VDC power
    supply, and even with its 100% duty cycle, the
    gripper generates very little heat.
    The DPE series can handle up to 120
    parts per minute and can achieve a
    grip force of 20 lb (90N). The fully-
    sealed motor housing protects
    against contaminants and moisture in
    the toughest applications.

      Helical Solutions is introducing the H40ALV and H40ALV-RN, representing a major
      expansion of its aluminum end mill series. The endmills are robust additions to
      the Helical lineup and include intricate geometry additions for a non-ferrous
      machining solution. This new H40ALV line includes a variable-pitch flute
      configuration and cutting-diameter tolerances that are among the tightest
      in the industry (-0.0001" to -0.0004"). This precision delivers reduced
      chatter, fewer tool offset adjustments, and optimum tool performance.
         Both the H40ALV and the H40ALV-RN are available in shank diameters
      ranging from 1/4" to 1". Special configurations can be manufactured within
      10 days.

      Two separate geometries are being offered, and any shop milling
      aluminum and non-ferrous materials will benefit from using these two
      inserts in conjunction with the WIDIA Victory M1200 milling cutters.
      Their combination of toughness and wear resistance allow faster fee-
      drates, and the 12 cutting edges per insert, as well as the reduced
      power consumption resulting from the free-cutting geometry, make
      them very economical to use. They are ideally suited for the majority
      of machining centers in use today, using moderate to high spindle
      speeds and regular depths of cut (up to 4.5mm or 0.180").
         The LDJ geometry featuring optimized rake angles is specifically
      designed to be free-cutting. This insert with 12 cutting edges is avail-
      able in two grades, THMU and a TiB2-coated TN6501. Both inserts
      are peripherally ground and feature highly polished rake surfaces.

      Power Hydro Chuck (PHC) series
      hydraulic chucks have 20% greater
      clamping force than standard collet
      chucks and are designed for a range of machining
      applications including precision drilling, reaming, fine
      boring, and finish endmilling. They are guaranteed to have a
      runout accuracy of 3µm or less at a projection length of 50mm or 100mm
      (depending on the cutting tool diameter). Additionally, PHC series hydraulic
      chucks feature an optional adjustment mechanism that allows the cutting tool
      projection length to be easily adjusted with a hex wrench.
         PHC series hydraulic chucks are available in bore diameters in inch sizes from 1/4" to 1-1/4" and metric sizes from 6mm
      to 32mm. The 1/2", 3/4", 12mm, and 20mm PHC chucks can accommodate PHS series straight collets, which are sized
      for cutting tools with shanks as small as 1/8" or 3mm. PHC chucks are available from stock in CAT, BT, HSK, and AHO
